Default New Handbuilt, custom made Canyon Reel

My new buddy Don, owner of Canyon reels, has been snowed in for 7 days now..no mail in, no UPS..no nuttin, he says he got 39 inches of freakin snow on his stoop, Jersey winters, geeze! Anyways, he was gonna send me my new reel in time for Christmas, he hand builds these one at a time, this is my HS-30 2 speed reel he built for me...it was supposed to be solid black..but..he had 7 days to think about it and he opted to gimme a splash of bling with the silver handle and buttons, drag rail. I think it looks amazing, this reel has 78 pounds of drag at max...65 at strike The reel does not bind at max settings and the drag is silky smooth (Got one field tested a while back before production) So here we are, waiting for the reel...Don has to wait for UPS so the new Jerry Brown Blue hollow core 80 can arrive then he'll spool it up with a 30 foot flouro topshot and send it on it's way! Oh yeah, forgot to mention, Alan Tani just tore down one of these and proclaimed it a masterpiece...for those not in the know, Alan is one of the finest reelsmiths in the world today and has field tested virtually every new product on the market!

Reel weighs 26 ounces spooled!

Now, lemme see if I got these pics right!

Talk to Don at Canyon reels, he is the owner/builder. I feel certain that if you mention that Brian from Leesburg put the pictures of his reel on your fishing forum and you like the reel, he will give you a discount...not certain, but I have the feeling from talking to him that he is a really good business man that wants to get his product out there. This particular reel will have 350 +/- yards of 80 spectra....capacities are listed on the site, surprisingly enough these reels are quite affordable...less than Avets and Accurates of lesser quality

From the prices on the site they look pretty reasonable if the reel is made like you are saying. I figured alot more for handbuilt reels.

Someone has a nice CNC Mill.

The whole body is a Billet of alum and then machined and anodized.

Very nice looking piece.

My sentiments exactly, Don is a heck of a nice guy and he truly has a passion for what he does...he gives a 100% two year warranty on these suckers and that is unheard of! I have sent my Avets in for service so many times to have them shipped back still effed up, accurates too..simply because there is a mass production reel where everybody tries to fix it except for the guy that built it...a bit different here. I can't wait to get my hands on this beast of a reel!
